New Learning Centre Module

April 2, 2024

The Law Practice Essentials course in the Law Society’s Learning Centre is intended to assist lawyers through the review of key practice management areas. It does not attempt to cover a complete knowledge base for each area but rather captures, highlights and provides an overview of core concepts.

We are pleased to introduce the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) module. ADR refers to the variety of process options by which disputes are resolved other than through traditional litigation. The increasingly prohibitive cost and delay that often occurs in litigation, and public interest in resolving disputes through other means, have highlighted the need for lawyers to understand the different ADR methods and, if appropriate, seek training to participate in those processes.

The module is intended to provide an overview of commonly used private ADR process options available in most practice areas outside of the court system.
